  • For members in either Plan, coverage is at 100% per visit with no calendar year deductible.
  • The annual coverage limit is provided up to a maximum of $500 per member/per year.

How will I receive my reimbursement?

The diabetes education reimbursements are processed the same way as any other health care claim. After your claim is processed and approved, you will receive a check directly from AETNA.

What is the deadline to submit my reimbursement request?

Similar to other health care claims, you must submit your reimbursement request by the end of the year following the year of service/purchase. For example, a claim incurred in February, 2014 must be submitted by December 31, 2015.
